Product Rave: Dr. Bronner's 18-in-1 Hemp Citrus Orange Pure Castile Soap

INGREDIENTS: Water, Saponified Organic Coconut & Organic Olive Oils (w/Retained Glycerin), Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Orange Oil, Organic Lemon Oil, Organic Lime Oil, Organic Grapefruit Oil, Citric Acid, Vitamin E

So, I'm a sucker for anything citrus. I just love the scent. I used to use Dr. Bronner's castile soap back in 2005-2006, not sure why I stopped using it. I would use the peppermint or the almond. Back then, I don't think they had the citrus scents.

Castile soap is the greatest. You can clean just about anything with this. You can do laundry with it. You can clean your whole body, head to toe. I use it to wash my hair and to wash my body. I love the scent and the fact that it's derived from oils and not synthetic fragrance. This product is 100% natural. Woo hooo! It creates a rich lather. When washing your hair you only need to shampoo once...unless you have a lot of product build up, or you just love that "squeaky clean" feeling. If you use this with a pouf or a sponge, you won't need much to make a great lather.

My only con - it burns like the dickens if you get it in your eyes. Other than that, I have nothing bad to say about it. It will be a staple from now on. I think I'm going to go back and get the orange to try out, and I'm currently using up a small bottle of almond. I may use that in the laundry, though.

This soap gets 5 stars and two thumbs up! :)

where did you buy this? As much as I want to go natural (products, not hair) I'm hoping it's convenient.

You could probably get it at any natural/organic grocery store...they don't have this scent at Trader Joe's...they had the peppermint, I think? I can't think of any stores in ATL off hand - lemme pick my ATL friends' brains and I'll let you know. :)
